Bahrain Gem & Jewelry Sector

The first workshop on doing business with the US was for the jewelry industry. After getting to know the Managing Directors of the six largest manufacturers in the country, I helped form the first true exporters association - JEM ("The Bahrain Jewelry Exporters & Manufacturers Association"); I wrote their bylaws and developed their marketing strategy for US entry and promotion. I also assisted one of the manufacturers gain a license for doubling their manufacturing capacity.
